Why doesn't anybody post C++?

Exactly what the title says, you see python, HTML/CSS/JS, Nodejs, the occasional Bash, and basically nothing else. Why?

I like doing 2D projects
C++ graphics on repl is laggy so I'm stuck with HTML Canvas and JavaScript
normally I would use C++

Because most of repl uses python, etc. There are also some other reasons such as:

  • They don't believe it to be worth putting the effort into a C/C++ program when people can just make simple canvas games/websites that get hundreds of cycles compared to more complicated projects as well as being able to be churned out every day or so, unlike a more complex project.

  • They are aiming for cycles specifically.(Why waste your time making something unique when you can just get tons of cycles from a cookie clicker clone or something)

  • Repls using a language like C/C++ being less likely to be viewed since less people know the language/understand the project.

  • They would rather die than be remembered as just another cycle farmer.

  • Not wanting to post their good projects knowing it will just be buried immediately by Coder100's new canvas dice simulator thingy or if its not him it will be someone else farming the cycles away from them.

See https://repl.it/talk/ask/Why-does-seemingly-no-one-use-C/77509. Anyways I've been working on an OS lately and haven't used much C++.
